Access to appropriate mental health care is a concern for people in Raleigh. Roughly 14% of residents who are age 65 or younger do not have health insurance. Some mental health advocates believe the closing of the Dorothea Dix psychiatric hospital in 2010 has contributed to inadequate resources for county residents with mental health issues.

People with adverse mental health conditions have higher rates of homelessness, emergency room visits, and arrests.
